Footnotes

  • Like that other great cult car of the post-WW2 era - the Volkswagen 'Beetle' - the Mini proved amenable to all manner of imaginative interpretations by devotees, though its boldest reinvention - the Jeep-like Moke - came from BMC itself. Conceived as a military vehicle but rejected by the British Army, the Moke was redeveloped for the civilian market, deliveries commencing in 1964. The car's open design meant that, even with the optional weather protection erected, it was not the ideal vehicle for the British climate and the vast majority ended up overseas. Production too was transferred abroad after 1968, continuing in Australia until 1981. Australian-built Mokes were already being exported to Portugal in kit form and production proper commenced there in 1983. In 1990 Rover sold the Moke project to Italian motorcycle manufacturer Cagiva, which continued production in Portugal until 1993.

    Sold as a utility vehicle in overseas markets but in Britain viewed more as a fashion accessory, the Moke captured the 1960s' spirit of freedom and self-expression more effectively than any other car. The Moke's prominent role in Patrick McGoohan's cult - and oft repeated - TV series The Prisoner has only served to maintain its popularity and today this quirky Mini variant remains highly sought after.

    Previously registered in Italy, this left-hand drive Mini Moke was purchased by the current vendor at Bonhams' Monaco Sale in May 2012 (Lot 273) since when it has been treated to new seat cushions. We are advised that 'BOU 82H' is in generally good/very good condition, although the water pump needs replacing. Sold strictly as viewed, the car is offered with current tax and V5C registration document.
